Toolex was founded in Hertford in 1967 and at that time stocked a range of incremental sized Swiss reamers, unique in the U.K.

In 1972 Toolex moved to Sherborne, Dorset where better facilities were available and in 1978 the operation expanded again to incorporate grinding facilities, enabling it to produce a larger range of reamers.

A move in 1990 to a custom-built factory in Wincanton incorporated state of the art workshops and facilities. The Toolex product range has also increased to include many precision engineering tools, all made to the highest standards.

Toolex today enjoys an unrivalled reputation for the quality of its products, the breadth of the range held in stock for immediate dispatch and its personal service.
